You report all your income and file a resident tax return in Massachusetts and a nonresident tax return in Connecticut. 

In general, the nonresident's state of residence will allow a credit for the income taxes paid to Connecticut for income earned in Connecticut.  The nonresident who works in Connecticut will be required to file a nonresident return (Form CT-1040NR/PY) in Connecticut as well as a resident income tax return in his state of residence.

 

Please see the following: https://portal.ct.gov/DRS/Individuals/Individual-Tax-Page/Nonresident-Working-in-Connecticut#:~:text...

Answers are correct to the best of my ability but do not constitute legal or tax advice.

when doing TT make sure you complete the non-resident state first. this is necessary so the correct credit is calculated for your resident state.
